We’re proud to announce a new platform for district leaders and application partners to share their successes and challenges with others like them. Many of the districts and applications we work with express to us that they wish there was a way to connect with other Clever users, find answers to questions more easily, and […]
It’s that time of the year again in education. Students around the country are enjoying the final moments of winter break, giving teachers and administrators a few quiet moments to wrap up next year’s lesson plans before school bells ring again. For us at Clever, as we prepare for the year ahead, this time of year is also a time of reflection.

With the universe of high-quality, effective K-12 learning applications as wide as it’s ever been, schools are adding new apps at a rapid rate. But for all of the benefits these resources have in the classroom, they’re not particularly interoperable, so stitching it all together into a manageable system is presenting some challenges for schools.

On our Student Information System (SIS) Partnerships team, we often think about what makes a great sync—is it quick and easy setup? Is it a sync that sends all student contact data? Does it matter if it syncs once or twice a day? These are important questions that we think about and want to be able […]
